next year, new tax in new york city will carry a made in mexico label. mexico is the top exporter of flat screen tvs. in fact, mexico exports more manufactured products than all the other countries in latin america combined. three main factors are in play. for one, geography. sharing a border with the united states means heavy products are cheaper to transport across than if they were manufactured in asia. the second factor is nafta, mexican products are subject to lower duties than those from other countries. in fact, the economist points out that mexico has trade deals with 44 countries, the most of any nation in the world. the third factor is wages. as other manufacturing hubs become more expensive, mexico has become more competitive. according to hsbc in 2000 mexican workers earned nearly five times the salary of their chinese peers. but by 2011, mexican workers were only about a third more expensive than chinese workers. when you project all these advantages into the next few years, mexico's economic future looks robust. the national intelligence council released an important

, only three metates left the market on the backs of new owners. sanders thinks that like their modern counterparts in mexico, the copan metateros were also farmers. filomeno does not have enough land to be a full-time farmer, but in ancient copan, there was ample land, but of poor quality. the land at petapilla would barely sustain the family working it, so making metates part-time to supplement what they could grow made economic sense. sanders and his team have now found evidence that other farmers around copan were also engaged in part-time manufacturing in specializations like lime making, pottery and woodworking. these part-time specializations are for sanders a sign that the economy of copan was taking the first steps toward complexity. sharing the sun with ancient copan was another city whose economy was so complex it became a wonder of the ancient world. that city was teotihuacan. teotihuacan -- founded more than 2,000 years ago. around a.d. 600, at the height of its power, this magnificent city held at least 125,000 people, five times the population of the entire kingdom of co
